As a worldwide leader in vacuum technology, Gardner Denver Nash has the expertise and knowledge to ensure that you receive the best product for your application. We don't just sell something off the shelf. We take the time to determine what your needs are through a comprehensive analysis of your process. We then design the system to meet your specific requirements beginning with the fundamentals - capacities, vacuum or pressure levels and the unique demands your process will require. We take into consideration your objectives relative to operating costs and initial capital investment. Then, we engineer a NASH® system to satisfy all of your needs.
The Liquid Ring Advantage
Liquid ring vacuum pumps and compressors that use a fluid compressant in lieu of pistons, vanes or rotating lobes are the best choice in most applications. They provide benefits that are not possible with other alternatives. Gardner Denver Nash easily complies with ATEX requirements because of the isothermal compression that is characteristic of liquid ring pumps. Simply put, NASH pumps run much cooler than other technologies.

Chemicals Handled Unlike other vacuum pumps and compressors, NASH systems can handle moisture-laden inlet streams; explosive gases; dirty, abrasive or corrosive gas mixtures; and unpredictable streams that change with process variables. Some of these gases and vapors are: Acetone Acids Air Alcohol Ammonia
Aniline Benzene Butadiene Carbon Dioxide Chlorine
Freon Hydrocarbons Hydrogen Hydrogen Cyanide Hydrogen Sulfide
Isopropyl Ether Ketones Nitrous Oxides Propylene Oxides PVC
Styrene Sulfur Dioxide Vinyl Chloride Monomer
Complete application solutions Our goal at Gardner Denver Nash is to provide long life, reliable, low maintenance and energy efficient solutions to processes like: evaporation, distillation, vacuum filtration, gas compression, VOC recovery, solvent recovery and drying.
We produce a complete range of products and systems for industries including: Chemical Petrochemical Water Treatment Mining Petroleum Steel Pharmaceutical
Explosive Gas Compression
A typical arrangement for handling explosive gases, this compressor system keeps acetylene cool and saturated with water, which is used as the seal liquid. By doing this, the risk of explosion is minimized.
In one of several batch monomer recovery systems, unreacted vinyl chloride is first transferred into the evacuated holding tank. A NASH vacuum pump scavenges gas out of the PVC and delivers it to the compressor inlet at or near atmospheric pressure. The singlestage compressor then compresses the gas for condensation and storage as a pressurized liquid.

To eliminate plugging from polymer carryover, NASH ejectors are driven with ethylene glycol vapor. Liquid ethylene glycol is then used as the vacuum pump seal liquid and also to cool the direct contact condensers. This eliminates process contamination from water, steam and air.
Vacuum tumble-drying performed in batch processing requires a gradually increasing vacuum to draw out solvents at the maximum sustainable rate. Often times this same solvent can be used as the pump seal liquid and motive vapor in the ejector to operate the process. Contamination is eliminated and pure solvent is recovered.

Seal Liquid Options Water is an excellent seal liquid and is most often used due to its availability and convenience. There are many situations, however, where alternative seal liquids may yield important process advantages or where even trace amounts of water cannot be tolerated in the product. In these instances, NASH vacuum pumps have demonstrated their versatility by successfully operating with a variety of other liquids. These liquids include: Acetic Acid Acetic Anhydride Acetates Acetone
Alcohols Caustic Soda Chlorinated Hydrocarbons
Gasoline Glycols Hexane Hytor Fluid
Kerosene MEK Oils Sulfuric Acid
Toluene Xylene and many others
Versatile product technology expertly applied Our broad range of products, consisting of liquid ring vacuum pumps, liquid ring compressors and ejectors can be individually applied or combined into packaged systems with additional components to serve a variety of process demands.
Liquid ring vacuum pumps The NASH liquid ring vacuum pump family provides a wide range of product options. From the topof-the-line heavy-duty P2620 with a dry air capacity of 23,000 CFM/ 39,082 m 3 /h to the mid-range Vectra (2,800 CFM/ 4,750 m 3 /h) and the smaller close-coupled 2BV series, we have the right answer for your individual vacuum requirement. Gardner Denver Nash knows the technology behind liquid ring vacuum pumps, because it invented the liquid ring principle of operation. Liquid ring vacuum pumps operate at low temperatures and are suitable for handling liquids, steam and condensate. Developed for the toughest applications, these pumps can safely and reliably extract explosive gas and corrosive vapors. Requiring minimal care and known for extremely low maintenance, NASH liquid ring vacuum pumps provide years of dependable service due to their robust design, rigorous quality, and their fewer and generously proportioned parts. Thanks to their low operating costs and extensive performance range up to 23,000 CFM/ 39,082 m3 /h, they excel in any application.
Liquid ring compressors Gardner Denver Nash offers the widest pressure and capacity ranges of liquid ring compressors worldwide. Together with the impressive NASH HP-9 and the introduction of the 14 over-hung models, NASH's highpressure compressor product line provides compression greater than 200 PSIG/ 15 Bar abs and up to 2,500 CFM/ 4,250 m3 /h per machine. Low-pressure compressors are available to 30 PSIG/ 3 Bar abs, and as much as 3 20,000 CFM/ 34,000 m /h. Found primarily in petroleum refineries and chemical plants, these rugged and reliable compressors handle highly toxic, explosive and corrosive gases in applications such as flare-gas, chlorine and Vinyl Chlorine Monomer (VCM) recovery.
